Toyota Corolla SX sedan 2017 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
6.5
The SX grade sits high up in the Corolla sedan line-up and lists for $22,990 if you’d like the manual, and you’ll pay $2250 for the automatic.

The SX grade sits high up in the Corolla sedan line-up and lists for $22,990 if you’d like the manual, and you’ll pay $2250 for the automatic.

Visually, the SX stands out from the grades below it with a tougher looking body kit incorporating side skirts and sporty front and rear bumpers, plus tinted windows. Standard features include a 7.0-inch screen with sat nav, a reversing camera, six-speaker stereo with CD player, rear parking sensors, air-conditioning, proximity unlocking (smart key), push button start, and 16-inch alloy wheels.

The SX is front-wheel drive and has a 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine making a competent 103kW/173Nm. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) is smooth but isn’t the most responsive automatic out there.

The SX will run on 91 RON unleaded and Toyota says it consumes 6.8L/100km on the combined (urban, extra-urban) fuel economy cycle.

The SX sedan is made in Thailand and scored the maximum five-star ANCAP rating. A 2017 update made advanced safety equipment such as AEB available for the first time, and this can be optioned on the SX grade.
